WWE Rumors: Brock Lesnar reportedly discussed retirement idea with Vince McMahon
What's the story?
Lesnar is reportedly pondering on the idea of retiring at WrestleMania 36 next year.
In case you didn't know...
Brock Lesnar is one of the most dominant Superstars in the history of the business. He debuted on WWE's main roster on the Raw after WrestleMania 18 and went on to become one of the biggest Superstars on the SmackDown brand.
Lesnar's 2nd stint with WWE came in the wake of a successful UFC career, which led to him becoming a legit hot commodity in the promotion. Lesnar held the Universal Title on several occasions and recently lost it to Seth Rollins in the opening match of WrestleMania 35. The Beast hasn't been seen in WWE ever since.
The heart of the matter
On the latest edition of the "Oh You Didn't Know" Wrestling Show, Brad Shepard stated that Brock Lesnar recently had a conversation with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, and discussed his WWE retirement. According to sources, Lesnar pitched the idea of retiring at WrestleMania 36 next year, which is going to emanate from Tampa Bay, Florida.

If Lesnar really wants to retire from WWE, there couldn't be a bigger stage for him to ride off into the sunset, than WrestleMania 36.
